Raw: CPR needed

Raw appears to be turning into Smackdown. Monday’s episode was a pretty boring commercial for Survivor Series. If you missed it, you didn’t miss much.

Stephanie McMahon was present, but she didn’t even put the usual spark in the show she brings whenever she shows up. She didn’t even look like she wanted to be there.

Scott Hall and Insane Clown Posse claimed they were going to “invade” Raw Monday night, just as they did to TNA at Turning Point, but there was no sign of them on air. I wish they did invade or WWE allowed it to happen (I think WWE took measures to prevent any invasions, including starting and ending the show with a ring full of wrestlers) because it would have put some life into the show.

Raw Results (11/17):
Victoria v. Kelly Kelly, Kelly pins Victoria
Batista v. Manu, Batista pins Manu
The Miz and John Morrison v. Rey Mysterio and Shawn Michaels, Miz pins HBK
